My name is Jen. I have a contagiously funny husband, three awesomely gorgeous daughters, a knack for design, a love for writing, an obsession with kids fashion, a secret desire to be a photographer and a curfew of 10 pm. WHO'S WITH ME?

I know I’ve been quiet around here lately, but that’s because I’ve been working on some projects, including–wait for it–A NEW BLOG. Every six months, I take a minute to reevaluate my priorities. I look back at my January New Year list of goals. I see what’s working and what’s not working and I change [...]
This post is sponsored by Envious Swimming, who generously offered my children 3 swimming classes and swimming caps in exchange for an honest review. This might be the year we use our pool. Well, we’ve used our pool in the five years we’ve lived here, but not a whole lot. In fact, the only times [...]
Up a day early! After missing this post for the last two weeks! Winning! Here’s our line-up for some good eats this week: Monday Marinated grilled steak tips (marinade- bit of olive oil, bit of worcestshire sauce, montreal steak seasoning, garlic) Sauteed asparagus + brussel sprouts (in balsamic vinegar, with some chopped garlic) Carrot Fries [...]
It’s been a full week since the sit-a-thon and I am still in awe of our weekend. What started as a simple message from Jake, the amazing manager at La-Z-Boy in Warwick, saying he saw my post on Facebook about our friend’s daughter who’d been diagnosed with leukemia and he wanted to help, turned into [...]

I remember the first time I went to a Harlem Globetrotters game. I was 10, living in Wellington, Florida, and, along with three other unscathed and overconfident 10 year-olds, I cheerleaded at halftime. In front of thousands of people. This might not seem like a big deal to some of you, but I wasn’t a [...]
Lily wanted to “do a video” to quickly tell her big sister something. Her big sister repaid the kindness by tripping on her way over to hug Lily, banging her nose, and bleeding all over Lily’s arm. That’s good quality sister love.
I love Easter. It’s a symbol of new beginnings, renewed spirit and is a kickoff to longer, sunnier, brighter days. It’s filled with happiness, comfort, and treasured family bonding. And it’s also a day for egg hunts, ricotta pies and THE EASTER BUNNY. Each year, the Easter Bunny makes his (or her) way around our [...]
It’s no secret that I’m a sap. Heartfelt commercials. Hard-earned accomplishments. A leftover LEGO hiding at my bedside so that when I step out of it in the morning, I have no choice but to lose at least a third of my foot to it. All of these things make me cry. You know what [...]
Happy Monday! I think one of the key points to kicking off your Monday without dread is to have a meal plan in place. Or, at least an idea. Since we’ve started meal planning, there has been so much less pressure to use my brain for more than it’s needed for during the week. There [...]
